 POLITICOS TO SPEAK  AT   UBC
Natives Slaves
Bowman Tells
Christian Meet
• OPINION that  the natives of
certain   outlying  provinces   in
Bolivia and other South American
countries had little or no religiouj
freedom and were "slaves of a religious system," was expressed by
George Bowman, for several years
a missionary worker in Bolivia, ia
an address to the regular missionary meeting of the Varsity Christian Fellowship at noon Wednesday in Arts 206.
Mr. Bowman's talk was entitled
"The Southern Cross" and drew
a simile between the Southern
Cross, which is a constellation of
stars in the form of a cross and
often visible in South America,
and the Roman Catholic cross
which "was Imposed upon thes*
natives first in the early days by
Pizarro," gold-seeking Spanish ad-
venturer, who "forced them to
choose between the sword and the
cross."
LIKE QUEBEC
A condition between the church
and the state in certain Bolivian
provinces exists "similar to that
found today in Queoec, Mr. Bowman said. However, where ever
the officers of the law and their
services reach religious freedom
was usually found in one form or
another, the speaker added.
The sign of the Roman Catholic
cross is in evidence everywhere
in South America, on walls, build -
ings, In the homes, yet "terrible
sins are committed in tho very
shadow of the cross," Mr. Bowman
went on to say.
The missionary tola fhe VCF
members of cases of religious
martyrs many years ago who were
tried before an Image ot the Virgin Mary. If the Image nodded
fhe victim was executed. Mr.
Bowman explained that the head
of the image was moved by means
of strings controlled by a Fran-
siscan monk in the next room.
Alert Students
Avert Explosion
• A   SERIOUS  explosion   was
narrowly averted in the UBC
Science building on Tuesday night
when a waste basket full of paper
blazed by spontaneous combustion
a few feet from fifty pounds of
explosive in a vacant laboratory.
"'Students had been performing
experiments in Room 308," said
Mort Rothstein, Chem. 9 student
familiar with the laboratory. "Apparently chemicals were tossed
into the waste basket."
After the room had been vacated, about 7 p.m., the chemicals Ignited paper In the basket, which
flared up. A sink was damaged,
and the nearby explosive endangered. Some smoke damage was
Inflicted.
Prompt action by student* still
In the building saved thc room
from serious damage by fire and
possible blast.
Science Halls Need
One-Way Traffic
• ONE WAY traffic and no U
turns are suggested as a solution to the traffic congestion In
the Science Building by students
who complain of rush hour traffic hazards.
Inadequate lockers and lab facilities add to the general confusion as Incoming and outgoing
classes rush to the same lockers.
Chemistry professors who direct
the 1350 Chemistry 1 students approved the suggestion the students
go in one door and leave by thc
other.
However they expressed doubts
as to the possibility of making 1500
students listen to reason.

ONE MINUTE TILL STATION BREAK on the University of BC's loudspeaker network,
Engineer Gordon Carter signals to announcer Bill Watts, president of the UBC Radio So-
:iety. With this equipment the society plans t o broadcast through Vancouver stations and
eventually from the university's own transmitter. By the time of the major football game
of the season, the "Homecoming" tussle, October 27, UBC will be broadcasting over city
stations as well as through its campus loudspeaker network now in use.	
IFC Against
More Groups
For Greeks
• INTRODUCTION of new fraternities on the  campus this
year, which was at one time considered a possibility with the
greatly increased student body, is
now generally believed unnecessary, according to the Interfraternity Council.
No definite decision was reached
by the IFC when this matter was
discussed at their first meeting on
September 25. The fact that only
210 men registered for fraternity
rushing this fall however, would
seem to Indicate that no new frats
will make their appearance this
season. Last autumn there were
175 registrants for rushing,
FEARS COMPETITION
IFC President Ken Broe declares the council's wish in this
matter Is that all the Greek organizations will thrive this year as in
certan cases their ranks have been
somewhat depleted during the past
few semesters.
It. is feared that many additions
to the eleven frats now represented on the campus would present
difficulties in regulation and might
tend to bring about an undesirable
form of competition among the
Greeks.
Sorority Rushees
To Meet Friday
• SORORITY RUSHEES wi.l
meet in Applied Science 100 at
noon on Friday.
Preferences for closed parties
are Jto be submitted to the office
of the Dean of Women Monday.
These preferences must be in between 9:30 and 12:30.
Closed parties begin the week of
October 18.
The number of girls registered
for rushing is slightly higher than
last year. There are at present
167 rushees.
REHABILITATION ABOVE
LIQUOR, SAYS LEGION
• REHABILITATION and reconversion problems were included in a five point program submitted to a meeting of the university branch of the Canadian Legion by President Tony Greer. It
was unanlmouslly approved
Referring to an article in Tuesday's Ubyssey, Greer told • reporter thr.t the problem of "where
shall we drink our beer" was subordinated by important problems
of rehabilitation and reconversion.
He said that the Legion would
welcome} those who require assistance of any kind. He added that
the problems consisting of grants,
gratuities and housing conditions
were not too great to be handled
by the university branch since tha
branch worked in close co-operation with the national body.
He voiced his hope that the Legion would Instill a sense of 1m-
Ssrtance ln the veterans regarding
lelr own problems. Upon graduation their knowledge on these
problems would be of great help
in adjusting the difficulties ol other returned men, he said.
Pointing out the necessity of extra classes for all those who wish
to brush up on the fundamentals,
he said the Legion was working
on a plan whereby hired or voluntary teachers, possibly ex-service
men or recent graduates, could be
procured for that purpose.
Part time or summer employment for veterans was also discussed. Because many legionalres
who are now established in business offer priority to veterans, the
point was significant.
The president emphasized the
Importance of the Legion working
hand in, glove with the other student bodies.
"This is necessary," he said, "if
both are to function smoothly."
The Legion also advocates the
promotion of discussion periods In
an effort to carry the flght for the
type of life Canadians desire, from
the field of battle to the successful
conclusion through the workings
of a democratic country.
The president expressed the desire of the Legion to procure flifct
hand information from eminent
speakers.
"The plan," said Mr. Greer, "is
a feasible one, and will continue
to expand until it's important
work is accomplished."

Ten Degrees
For Famous
Graduates
• THE FALL Congregation of
the University of B.C. on October 31 will make history as ten
distinguished graduates of the institution receive honorary degrees.
This largest list in the annals of
the university Includes eight LLD's
and two DSc's, all conferred in
recognition of services to the national war effort and of honors
brought to the Alma Mater by the
recipients.
One delayed degree will also be
conferred. Dr. H. J. Cody, former
President and new Chancellor of
the University of Toronto, will receive the LLD conferred upon him
last year by UBC. Held back because of his absence, the degree
will be officially conferred at this
Congregation. Dr. Cody will make
the principal address this year.
Major-General H. F. G. Letson,
MC, BSc, who graduated from
UBC in 1919, and received his PhD
at London in 1023, will receive an
honorary LLD. A former commander of Uie COTC at this university, Maj.-Gen. Letson served
as Adjutant General of the Canadian Army during World War II.
Dieppe hero Brigadier Sherwood
Lett, DSO, MC, who graduated
from UBC as a Rhodes Scholar in
1916, will receive the degree of
Doctor of Law. Blrg. Lett won his
DSO during the raid on Dieppe,
where he was wounded.
Another famous soldier Brig.
William C. Murphy, DSO, who
commanded the first Canadian Armored Brigade through the heavy
fighting of the Italian campaign
and also in the last few weeks of
combat in Holland, will also be
honored with an LLD.
Air Commodore J. L. Plant, who
graduated from UBC In 1931, will
receive an LLD. Director of personnel at RCAF headquarters at
the outbreak of war, he has commanded squadrons and stations In
Ceylon, Bermuda, and England.
A former Instructor In history at
UBC, and in American universities,
Dr. Hugh L. Keenleyside is a
further recipient of an LLD. He
has served as Ambassador to Mexico, and was at one time attache to
the Canadian minister at Tokyo.
Highest ranking officer in the
Canadian civil service, Under-Secretary of the Department of External Affairs Norman A. Robertson receives an LLD. He graduated
from UBC In 1923, as a Rhodes
scholar.
Last two Law Doctorates will be
conferred on naval minesweeper
hero Lieut.-Comdr. Gordon Stead,
DSC and Bar, who served as senior officer in a minesweeper flotilla
off North Africa and Italy; and to
Mrs. Frank M. Ross, former secretary of the Canadian Tariff
Board and in wartime the administrator of oils and fats for the
WPTB. Both are UBC graduates.
Honorary degrees of Doctor of
Science will be conferred on two
more UBC graduates. Dr. George
M. Volkoff, head of the Canadian
Technical Bureau of Atomic Research, and former assistant professor of Physics here, is one of
the recipients.
The other is Col. Percy M.
Barr, US Army, who graduated
from UBC in 1924. He obtained
his MF from Yale and his PhD
from University of California,
where he was a professor of Forestry.
AMS GENERAL MEETING
BRINGS POLICY REVISION
• SPECIAL MEETINGS on the campus of representatives
of all political parlies participating in provincial and municipal elections, to be sponsored by the Alma Mater Society,
was approved at the first general meeting of the AMS
Tuesday.
The motion was introduced by Bernard Muller, McGill
graduate and teacher training student, as part of AMS policy
for this year "to foster an interest in public affairs, good citizenship and the use of the franchise."
Students Not Interested
Allan Ainsworth, AMS president, pointing to the sparse
attendance at the meeting, objected to the move on the
grounds that students were not interested in their own politics and could not be expected to support such a special meeting.
"A certain laek of interest in democracy in Canada is reflected at UBC," he said.
"We are not a political action committee yet," he said in
an aside which was audible only to tiie first few rows of students.
Another objection was raised by Ronald Grantham who
declared that the Social Problems Club was already bringing
political speakers to the campus.
Here an ex-serviceman declared
that the word "club" limited the
effectiveness of the plan. He said
the support of the whole student
body is needed.
YES THEY ARE
The claim that students ore not
interested In politics was answered
from the floor by a student who
said that many students were ex-
servicemen with a vote.
"These students are Interested In
politics," he said.
The question was raised from
the floor as to who dictated the
policy of the SPC.
Garry Miller, AMS treasurer, replied that all speakers must be
approved by the Student Council
before they are brought to the
campus.
A second clause to the motion
asked that special space be allocated for statements from political party representatives In The
Ubyssey. It was defeated.
Questioned later as to the faculty reaction to such a plan, Dr.
N, A. M. MacKenzie said that as
long as it was carried out impartially and with responsibility, no
one could object.
In reply to a question as to
whether such a move by the AMS
would endanger money grants
from Victoria as was suggested at
the AMS meeting, he again stressed impartiality as a necessity to
prevent criticism.
SO LITTLE TIME
"The difficulty," he said, "would
be the mechanics of time and
place."
He pointed out that while the
faculty had no objection to tha
cancellation of lectures, it was
hard on those taking courses which
only have one lecture a week,
which comes at the time of such
meetings.
However speaking as a former
student president, Dr. MacKenzie
said that he would not wish, If he
were on Council, to add to hU
duties.
"The Council members are busy
enough now with then: present
duties," he said.
NEW QUARTERS
NEEDED SAYS
LEGION PREXY
• A NEW OFFICE for the university branch of the Canadian
Legion is an absolute necessity,
according to president Tony Greer.
Temporary headquarters for tho
legion are In Hut 2 but the group
hopes to move to the former Red
Cross room in Brock hall. Legion
members say if they have an office
in the Brock it will be easier to
co-operate with the AMS.
The two organizations must correlate idsas which is* impossible if
they are at opopsite ends of the
campus,  legion  officials say.
Frosh To Choose
Executive Friday
• A NEW duty has been added
to  the  responsibility  of  tho
Athletic representative to be selected during freshman class elections in tiie auditorium on Friday
noon. Four officers are to be
chosen,
"The athletic representative will
be expected to take an active patr
In promoting the new intramurals
system," said Ted Klrkpatrlck,
Junior Member of students' council. "Through him, the spirit of
the freshman class will be molded."
President, vice-president, and
secretary-treasurer of the first-
year students will also be elected
on Friday. The immediate duties
of the new executive will be to
organize the Frosh class party.
The AMS hopes that at least one
woman will be elected to the
Frosh executive, Klrkpatrlck stated.
"It should be a representative
body and there ought to be one
ex*'serviceman on it, as well," he
said. "We hope that at least one
student just out of high school will
also be included." >
All members of the freshman
class are expected to meet in the
auditorium at 12:30 Friday for the
election.
Four-Name List
For Soph Member
• ROSEMARY   HODGINS, Bob
Harwood  and  Peter  Graham
have announced their intention to
run for the new office of Sophomore Member on Students' CouncU.
The candidates' platforms will
appear In Saturday's Ubyssey and
they will address the student bodv
In the auditorium at noon on
Monday. The election will be held
on Wednesday.
Rosemary Hodgins and Bob
Harwood were on last year's frosh
debating teams, and Peter Graham
wears an Airforce Reserve pin.
A last minute entry is dark-
horse Roy Messum, second year
Artsman. Measure arrived on the
campus Tuesday after four years
in the Canadian navy.
UBC Pix Review
To Be Sold Soon
• A PHOTOGRAPHIC and historical review   of   the   UBC
campus will appear at the book
store before Christmas, AMS
treasurer Garry Miller said today.
'The book should appeal particularly to graduates," Miller said.
"It is underwritten by the AMS,
and we will handle the sales."
Distribution of 1200 copies on
the campus has been arranged.
Sale price of the publication is
$1.00.
STUDENTS    AGAINST   BUILDING   RESTRICTION
• QUICK ACTION on the building program to accommodate
the Increased enrolment is neces-
sary at UBC rather than restrictions on registration, according to
general student opinion as expressed in a poll taken by The
Ubyssey this week.
The questions asKeri were: 1. Tn
view of the number of returned
men who are on the campus this
year, do you think that civilian
first year students should have
been made to wait out a yecr bo-
fore going on with their education,
as at McGill?
2. In  view of the crowd:;! con
ditions on the campus this year,
do you think that? restrictions
.should be imposed upon registration next year? If so, to what
extent?
A THOUSAND TIMES NO
Students answered both questions with an emphatic "NO" 62.05
percent of those queried answered
no to the first, and 70.17 percent
answered  no to thc second.
Breakdown into men, women,
and ex-service students shows that,
with thc exception of the women
in answering the first question, no
one group .stood against the general opinion.
71.43 percent of the male students felt that civilian freshmen
should not be forced to wait out
a year before continuing with
their education. Bob Harwood,
Com. '48, expressed the opinion
many uttered when he said:
"No one should be barred
entrance to UBC. This is UBC's
chance to be put on thc map.
Thc greater thc number of students registered, then the greater
the need for expansion of facilities."
The opinion that the university
should be made large enough to
cope with  thc registrnli in,  rather
than having the registration limited
to the amount which the pressi.t
facilities can accommodate, was
very common among the students
"They found the money to build
thc airports and army camps, why
can't they find the money to expand UBC?"
A slim majority of the women
voted yos to the first question:
55.55 percent. Ex-servicemen reaffirmed the opinion of trn male
students, voting 60.67 percent
i.gninst making students wait out
a ycar.
Among thc almost 40 percent of
the veterans and the 55 percent of
the women who did vote yes, the
general opinion expressed was that
those who could take senior matriculation in the high schools
should do go. However, many felt
that students who took senior ma-
tric were more handicapped when
they entered second year than
they would be coming out to UBC
as first year frosh.
FROSH IMMATURE
Some of the ex-servicemen de-
clarcd that lirst year students a*
a rule wore too immature for university life. They said that students straight from high school
should either work for a year before entering university, or should
be subject to one year's compulsory military training.
But, "Civilians have as many
rights as veterans," was the opinion expressed tJy one ex-serviceman.
In answer to the second question, 80.46 percent of the male students queried felt that no restrictions should be imposed upon
registration at UBC.
"Restrictions aren't democratic,"
was a common comment.
"The university should be more
prepared next term," one mnn
said. "They will have all j c-ir to
build the additional faeilitii,
needed."
Opinions of the women students
in regard to the second question
ran parallel with the .men. 80.12
percent voted no.
The percentage of no's dropped
among the ex-servicemen, but
they still held the majority—62.50
percent.
Opinions differed widely in some
cases. Standard ideas, pro ani
con, were:
"What's the difference if a professor talks to ten students or talks
to  50,"   was  ono   veterans   query.
"There should be some sort of
a selection," said another, "But
no one should be indisi\ imhiutely
barred.'' ^

THE UBYSSEY, Thursday, October 11,1945, Page 2
The Same Old Story
\SW^%>
*-*
The Ubyssey has now become the favorite
topic of. discussion at general AMS meetings
to the exclusion, usually, of business which
the students are called together to discuss.
The Ubyssey appreciates the obvious interest which it has but the time has come
again to review the purpose of the Ubyssey
as outlined by the constitution of the Publications Board of the University of British
Columbia, and discourse briefly on the hallowed tradition of "Freedom of the Press."
This is for the benefit of Alma Mater Society
members who assented Tuesday to the proposed amendment to student council policy
which read like this,-
"Special space should be provided in the
Ubyssey for the presentation of different
statements in connection with this (that the
AMS shall call special meetings for the announcement of public elections at which,
members of political parties shall speak.)
The phraseology of the proposed amendments is vague and subject to different interpretations.
One is that the amendment was proposed
in order to ensure space in the Ubyssey for
pTeview news announcements of political
speeches and rallies on the campus sponsored by students, or unbiased news reports
of these speeches.
If this interpretation be true, may we point
out that any amendment would have been
totally unnecessary. A glance at one of the
clauses in the constitution outlining the function of the Ubyssey. is sufficient. It runs as
follows: "The Ubyssey shall serve to record
and to advertise such activities of the student
body of the University of British Columbia
or of any person or persons in relation to the
said student body, in the opinion of the
Board, subject to the approval of tiie Editor-
in-Chief, be considered of legitimate and sufficient news or educational value."
If. the amendment was put forward in
order to propose that the Ubyssey should be
forced to allocate space to statements from
political parties, the argument for freedom
of the press can be introduced here. Pressure is not brought to bear on downtown
papers by political parties, and the fact that
students should be willing to pass an a-
mendment giving political groups power to
dictate to their   own   campus   newspaper
seems highly illogical.
We have adhered to the constitution outlined for us by the student body in the past
and intend to do so in the future.
Coming down to more familiar cases, freedom of the press was ensured on the campus
itself when a few years ago editor-in-chief
was named a member of council, ex-officio
with no power to vote, but with power to
keep a critical eye on campus politicsand
evaluate them editorially for the student
body. The appointment of each editor-in-
chief is ratified by the student body and the
students place in this officer's hands the
power to decide whether student articles are
space-Worthy, representative of student opinion, or presenting all sides of a question
fairly and free from the taint of slander or
indecency. It is not the general policy to
abuse this power, and if the power were
abused, this officer is "subject to such control by the students' council as may at any
time be necessary in the interest of the
university, (Schedule A, clause 2, subject
(a) 4,—AMS constitution.)
The almost inevitable accusation that the
Ubyssey would not take its part in fostering
interest in current affairs on the campus by
refusing to print material submitted by political parties, is untrue. Our function is to
mirror student activities and present all sides
of student thought. The fairest way that we
can handle elections is to present unbiased
news reports of political speeches in tiie
campus. We have a letter to the editor
column, and students who hand in signed
letters to the Ubyssey may express partisan
opinions in this manner.
We believe, hearkening back to public
political lectures series sponsored by thp
Social Problems Club, that political speeches
if handled impartially, will be exceedingly
newsworthy and of great value to the student body.
Perhaps this editorial will help clarify the
position of the Ubyssey on the campus. If
so, let's get on with the business at future
AMS meetings and let misunderstandings of
AMS technicality be ironed out at weekly
Committee, a group set up by the students
themselves last spring for this purpose.
Here's To Open House
Rumor has it that the "Welcome to
Visitors" sign will be hung on the university gates this year with the reinstitution of
a yearly "Open House" day.
Actually, Open House would have carried
far more value during the war years, when
Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public could have seen
for themselves that we were even then working elbow-to-elbow, crowded labs and lecture
rooms were beginning to split at the seams,
and there weren't enough courses and faculties to go around.
Although Open House is being revived a
little? bit too late, parents and interested
spectators should be enabled to watch future
scientists at work, sit in on social service
classes, watch physical training displays, and
receiv* a complete picture, not the fragmentary view offered by downtown news
paper stories about freshman antics and
social activities of what the university is
now. Then perhaps as a result they may
envision what the university can accomplish
when it finally grows up.
The realization will come more readily
that if UBC is not allowed to grow at the
time when it is called upon to provide some
of the answers to inevitable post-war social,
economic, and political reverberations, it will
never have as much reason to expand again
and its growth may even be stunted.
Open House may prove many things to
citizens who otherwise may only evaluate
the needs and purposes of UBC by hearsay
and downtown news and editorial pages.
Open House may be one of the best things
that could happen to the university at this
time.
A Col
umn
by a Columnist
• IN THE MAIN lounge of the Brock
there dwells a tribe of rather peculiar
citizens who spend a large portion of their
time, spare and otherwise, playing a game
called bridge.
Bridge is a card game of sorts. It involves
four players and fifty-two cards and is unique in that there is no money on the table
during the play. Inasmuch as most people
are invited to play bridge at least once during their lifetime the ability to hold thirteen
cards and make intelligent utterances at appropriate intervals is a distinct social asset.
The first thing that an embryo bridge
player should learn is a system of bidding
and playing. There are several such systems.
The most widely used is the shin system
which involves steering your partner into
the correct play or bid by kicking his shins
sharply in Morse code.
This system is not to be recommended to
the beginner. Many hands have been lost by
an amateur kicking the wrong shin.
Another system, commonly known as the
method of associations, is also widely used.
As the player makes his bid he nochalantly
makes a sign which indicates the suit in
which he wishes the response. For example,
a hand clasped to the chest in the region of
the old fraternity pin asks if the partner has
any hearts. And attention drawn to the third
finger left hand subtly suggests a reply in
diamonds if possible. There is no limit to the
number of signs an ingenious couple can
work out.
Another popular system was devised by
some "fellow named Culbertson. The main
drawback to this particular set of conventions is that it requires much memory work
and a fair amount of intelligence. Culbertson claims that 98 per cent of all bridge
players follow his rules but the chances are
ten to one that if you do go to the trouble
of getting the system down pat you will
spend the rest of your life playing with the
other two per cent.
After the shouting and tumult of the bidding has died down, you will in all probability find yourself saddled with something
called a contract. This is in effect a wager
that you can get a prescribed number of
tricks. You cannot.
As your partner lays down his hand you
will discover first of all that you are in the
wrong suit. Your partner then walks around
to look at your hand, shudders, and then
departs for a smoke. It seems that he is a
sensitive chap and simply cannot bear the
sight of blood.
The actual playing of the game is simplicity itself. Anybody can make his contract
if he has the cards, the trick is to do it when
your opponents hold them. Anyone who can
do this is referred to as a good bridge player,
but the term applied to a person who does
not make his contract cannot be mentioned
here.
The bridge fiend is easy to identify. He
wanders around with a glassy stare muttering queer phrases involving "three and a half
honor tricks," "four to the ace king," and
"down two."
Then he will pause and sadly deliver the
classic line:
"Poor distribution."

• LETTERS
To The Editor
Dear Madam:
Over the course of the years the
students of this university have
been privileged to hear many outstanding speakers. None of these,
I venture to say, has by the force
of his personality influenced more
people throughout the world than
Dr. E. Stanley Jones, who spoke
here last Tuesday.
In 1936 when he last spoke here,
the students that day packed thj
audtiorium to the doors to hear
him, although the enrolment wos
only half what it Is now.
Tuesday enough students turned
out to' half fill a small lecture
room.
I have been wondering, "Why
the difference?" How true was tho
Implication that the executive of
the Alma Mater Society was not
enthusiastic ln its support of the
speaker? Was the advertising as
good as it could have been under
the circumstances?
I am loath to believe that tha
students of today are leu eager
to hear a truly great man than
they were nine years ago. Certainly if a man has spoken to
literally millions of people
throughout the world, and has
written books which nave been
translated Into many languages
and read by millions of people, we
should be able to provide a decent-sized audience to hear him.
I hope succeeding speakers will

Dear Madam:
The headline "UBC legionnaires
Concentrate on Wet Canteen at
First Meet" in Tuesday's Ubyssey
is an insult to the intelligence of
ex-servifemen and an affront to
those attending Friday's Legion
meeting.
The facts are these: The meeting was mainly concerned with
plans submitted by the Legion Ex.
ecutive for organization of the
university branch. It also heard
proposals for action to raise the
grants to students. The "wet canteen" was mentioned only in aa
aside from the floor but the chairman chose to say a few words in
dismissing the question.
This is indeed   a   disappointing
* sample of the "complete coverage"
so  loudly    proclaimed   by    Pub.
members at Tuesday's Alma Mater
meeting.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Purpose of the
lead of each news story is to attract the reader's attention to it
by emphasizing some point in the
story. None of the details of the
meeting referred to were ignored,
and the reporter, himself a member of the legion, chose to play up
a human Interest angle in the
story.
Dear Madam:
> Our good columnist, Hum
Opoots, seems to have detected a
lack of dignity and good taste ln
the Manitoba editorial on B.C.; it
is a pity that his response contained even less of both.
This contention needs little formal verification here. In a column
which mixes quotation, condensation, and interpretation into an
alarmingly misrepresentatlve
gumbo, friend Opoots apparently
strives to refute the well-pointed
Manitoba statements. He cannot
deny them outright (the evldenca
In the daily papers is too strong
for that); Instead, he Introduces
innuendo and irrelevant material
with the hope, I suppose, that he
will make them seem invalid. A
single example might be noted:
the racial prejudice charge i.s
countered with a judicious (and
meaningless) sprinkling about
such words as "bushido" and
"moral  treachery."
No one would deny a columnist
the right to say what ne chooses:
so much is proper.   It would add
grace  to  our  paper,  however,   if
his   remarks   were   well-written,
constructive,   or  even   (and   God
forgive  this  piou-s  wish,  particularly  in university)   intelligent.
Very truly yours,
Ed Lambe,
Applied Science '48.

Tum-Tum
by Hum Opoots
• THE EASIEST thing in tha
life of a colmunlst is to utter
criticism. The hardest thing, probably, is to absorb the inevitable
criticism he receives. We feel sure
our correspondent of Applied
Science '48 will understand, therefore, when We say we are grateful
for his letter, and wiil give the
matter much thought. We do not
intend to enter into argument
here, nor to interpret our own
hasty proofreading.
It is indeed unfortunate that, at
the time of writing, nothing more
immediately contentious has come
up than the World Series. One of
the greatest joys of the human
animal is that of taking sides: wa
miss it this week.
ANDREE IMITATED
We are therefore constrained to
imitate the wisdom of the first
Beauty on the Spot, ana refer to
a favorite book. Ours happens to
be Philip Wylie's "Generation of
Vipers."
This witty and acid essay on
manners and morals ot our timo
is extremely good entertainment.
Its frankness we have heard many
times described as appalling, horrible, brutal—yes, and the typical
epithet of immature has also been
applied.
But Wylie exceeds the entertainment field, and outstrips his
critics with a penetrating vision
which lays bare the soul of society.
He has taken it upon himself to
rip apart, with little constructive
effort to allay the pangs he rouses.
He makes people think.
ATOMIC VIPER
Or so we believe. We had no
personal social understanding until slapped ln the face by "Vipers."
It was an inteUectual atomic bomb,
and its action continues. Every
time we begin to hint at smugness, Wylie pokes an impertinent
and sharp finger into our moral
ribs.
There is little value in writing,
of whatever sort, unless it stimulates the receiving organism to
activity, mental or physical. This
could be generalized upon as
"propaganda" without much effort: it takes a touch of individualism and a good deal of honest
endeavor to draw logical conclusions from even illogical comment.
The provocative element in literature is well known, despite
efforts of sensationalist interests to
"play up" and "play down" material in aid of cash sales. This
very quality of provocation Is the
lifebloodof true writing—potboilers automatically excepted on
their own essential demerits.
OUCH! ITS ORIGINAL
Risking a sudden reaction from
toes of the English department,
upon which we appear to tread in
any attempt of this sort, we rush
on to add that one of the finest
experiences of life is that of an
absolutely original thought.
It is almost impossible to arguo
pro or con over the likelihood of
an original thought. One might
as well enter into the mighty the-
oligical disputations of the middle
ages as to the number of angels
dancing simultaneoulsy on a pin's
point.
But it is possible to form
opinions on the likelihood of
thought-stimulating potentialities
in literature, and it is as possible
to conclude that experience developing from Intelligent reading can
rise to almost Illimitable heights.
We would not care to conclude
one way or ajiother on the ethical
and moral benefits of D. H. Lawrence, or Rabelais—nor would we
care to hear cynical comments
which may be uttered on the experience to be gained from either.
But we are interested in the very
real delineations'of certain realms
of human problems and human
tragedy hi the former; and to the
latter we are indebted for a lively understanding of the life and
times of its writer.
The question of a revival, in
these post-war days, of some form
of academic development is not
without its merits. Our small
ideas on this subject of reading'
are thus sacrificed on the altar of
wider opinion in an attempt to
prove a point by example.
May the stimuli of tne printed
word be evident' Selan—we have
spoken.

SPC Is Social Proble:
•   PLAYERS' Club members say they don't believe thi

Players' Club is a social problem because  it  invaded  the
SPC's temporary headquarters last Friday.
Questioned yesterday in their ~"""~~~~"~"~~^~■"""~""""~~"~~
Oreen Room, the thespians declared moreover that they sec red
when they think of the conversion
job done by the SPC when it recently made its home in the
Players' Club makeup»room. "We
have a kick," declared Jim Argue
when he and three colleagues were
Interrupted in a bridge game in
their secluded and exclusive
chamber atop a narrow stairway
above the auditorium stage. .
The SPC, lacking a meeting
place, was given the use of the
other club's makeup room until
October 24. Asserted Argue:
"When they moved In they ripped
out our fixtures."
Last Friday while the Green
Room was being painted (green),
Players' Club property in it was
moved downstairs to the makeup
room. "The SPC was told that we
reserved the right to use that
room when necessary," Argui
said.
The SPC was given permission
to use the makeup room only until
October 24 because the players
will be busy with rehearails for
their November presentation.
EX-CONDUCTOR
HOPES FOR
MUSIC CHAIR
• HOPES FOR the establishment of a Chair ot Music ot UBC
in the near future were expressed
Wednesday by Gregory Millar,
1944 conductor of the university
orchestra, who graduated last
spring.
The talented Vancouver musician plans to take MA courses at
Harvard University next year. He
lectured today on "Music in the
Middle Ages" under auspices of
the history department.
Millar will give two further lectures: "Music and Culture of the
17th and 18th Centuries" in Arts
204 at 2:30 Friday, and "Music
During the Renaissance" in Arts
207 at 10:30 Saturday.
CBC SINGER
A violinist with the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra and a CBC
vocalist, Millar studied music composition at San Francisco this summer. While in the south he played
with the University of California
Symphony. He plans to study singing in the US until he leaves for
Harvard.
Millar studied violin under Jan
de Rimanoczy in Vancouver. He
was recommended to further musical studies at Harvard by the
young American composer and
conductor, Leonard Bernstein.

Jazz Critic
Wants Jive
Dignified
• JAZZ MUST have dignity, according to Nick Nicholson, jazz
announcer on radio station KXA,
Seattle, speaking at the first of a
series of talks sponsored by the
Jazz Society Tuesday.
"At present, jazz Is looked upon
as degenerate and leading to degeneracy," he said. "This impression is uppermost In the minds of
the public because of the stories
they have heard of the environment of early jazz music."
HISTORY OF JAZZ
Nicholson outlined the history of
jazz from its beginnings in New
Orleans, how it spread to Kansas
City and Chicago and to the nation.
He told how lt rose rrom the
back rooms and barrelhouses to
the concert halls of the continent.
The Impression that Jan is degenerate Is Incorrect, he maintained, because Jan Is now the only
truly national music of America
and thus it has become an art
form of, the people of the nation,
rather than people of one district.
Nicholson continued by comparing jazz to classical music. He
said that jazz was the more enjoyable of the two types in many
cases.
He declared that while classical
music has beauty and perfection,
it does not have the complete
musical emotional feeling of tho
artists of the jazz idiom. He also
said that classical music is preferred by the socialite classes for
the simple reason that it has been
the tradition to prefer such music.
He continued that jazz is slowly
changing in the sense of its technical form. He said that jazz is
a language spoken for pleasure by
those who love it and for that
reason only.
Nicholson concluded by comparing modern jazz musicians with
the old-time artists. He compared
the technical command of the
trumpet by Harry James to the
artistry of Louis Armstrong. He
showed the faults In James' lack
of emotional values.
Ross Stroud concluded tho
meeting by presenting Nicholso.i
with a lifetime membership in the
Jazz Society
He announced the first record
meeting of the society next Friday
at 12:30 in the Brock stage room.*

HOW Oil, WAS MiOUX
•    •    •
MllUOXf^Of  YIARS AfiO
•   •   •
Illustrated above is the birthplace of oil. Drawn from a model
built by modern scientists, our picture shows the marine life
that existed on the floors of ancient seas which covered large
parts of our continents and more than half of Canada—300
million years before man came upon the earth.
A miracle took place
As generation after generation of these .strange-looking plants
and fish and underwater animals died, they settled down into
the mud of the ocean bottom. And all the time, great prehistoric rivers were sweeping seaward the remains of animals
and plants that lived in the forests. Along with millions of
tons of silt, these too were deposited on the sea floor.
As the ages rolled by, a miracle took place. Buried under the
Salt water, the mud and silt turned to limestone and shale . ..
the fatty parts of the plant and animal matter underwent a
chemical change and became oil.
The earth's crust shifted
Then came a time of great upheaval, when the submerged lands
thrust upwards, pushing back the shallow, inland seas. The
old sea floors, with their layers of rock and oil, were cast _e^+ £ £
up high and dry to form parts of today's continents,   f IM|)Bf)|A|
PRODUCTS
Some of the oil seeped to the new earth's surface, to form
asphalt pits such as are found in Trinidad and California.
But most of it was buried thousands of feet below ground level.
There, mixed with salt water and gas, it soaked into sandy
pockets and pools where it was trapped and walled in by
masses of hard rock through which the oil could not seep.
Hundreds of useful servants
Today these underground stores of oil, found in many parts of
the world including Canada, are of great service to mankind.
Not only do they provide the gasoline and oil to drive and
lubricate our motor cars; they are also the source of essential
petroleum products that serve the factory worker, the painter,
the printer, the doctor, the railroadman, the roadmaker, the
housewife and the farmer.
It may surprise you to know, for example, that Imperial Oil
Limited makes several hundred individual petroleum necessities
for Canadians, in its refineries in British Columbia, Alberta,
Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Northwest
Territories.
* According to geologists, some of today's oil-bearing earth strata
were formed in the "Ordovician Age" which began 300 million
years ago.

THUNDERBIRDS GOTO ALBERTA
FOR FIRST HARDY tUP FEATURE
• THE UNIVERSITY of British
Columbia Thunderbirds will
open their Hardy cup campaign on
October 24, when they Journey to
Edmonton to play the University
of Alberta Oolden Bears.
From Edmonton they travel on
to Saskatoon to meet the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on
October 27. The two prairie
schools then play a home snd
home series with the winners, entraining for Vancouver to hook up
with the Thunderbirds on November 7 and 10 ln the Varsity sta>
dium.
When the 'Birds line up at
Clarke stadium, Edmonton, they
will be facing an outfit coached by
their former mentor Maury Van
vliet. Maury left UBC last spring
to take over the Physical Education Director's duties at the Alberta college and will be handling
the reins of the Oolden Bears.
The Varsity team haa been working out every night for two weeks
under the watchful eyes of Coach
Greg Kabat and are gradually be-
ginning to round into shape. Kabat should be able to field a 200
pound Une. With such hefty forwards as Al Lamb and Nate Kal-
ensky, both weighing in at 220
pounds, Herb Capozzi, who was
offered a football scholarship at
St. Mary's college last spring, Bill
Mcintosh  and Jim Goulabef,  all
nudgi ' the two hundredweight
mark, .he Thunderbirds really
pack a lot of power.
The backfield boasts considerable beef, too. Outstanding in this
department are Rex Wilson, PhU
Quman, both former Kitsilano
sparkplugs, and Fred Joplln, Varsity star way back in 1939. Altogether, over 35 players are trying
to make the team with the top 24
taking the trip to the prairies.

WE'VE SEEN IT ALL NOW
•   FIRST OF ALL we heard about it and we hoped th
such wonderful aspirations might really come true. Nc
long after that, we read about it in this remarkable sheet
Once more we remarked thaf it was a terrific idea that it
would sure be great if it worked.
But last Thursday morning, yours truly saw it with his
own two little eyes and how can anyone do anything else'but
believe that it must be true when one has actually seen it.
By now you are probably wondering just what we have
seen that should cause such interest. We refer to the Girls'
Physical Education program which has been instituted so
successfully this year at dear old UBC. We can say that it
causes interest because never before in this humble scribe's
life has he seen anything like it on the campus.
It all started when I was making my way to the Armoury
where I keep a few books that there aren't room for in the
•ports desk (mostly because Luke seems to think that he
should be able to leave his books here too!)
May Be Judo Next, Hmm?
Of course it was still early in the morning, somewhere
around 9:151 believe, so that I was still in a profound, sleepy
mood. And so it was that as I entered said Armoury, I was
greeted by a long line of girls marching out carrying bows
and quivers full of arrows. Believe me, I also quivered.
After I had got my breath back from this rather amazing sight, (there must have been at least 20 of them!!) I entered boldly into the place which for me holds nothing but
memories of young guys like myself marching up and down
to the commands of Corporals and up.
But now, things were different, yes, very different. This
morning, I found myself confronted with a long line of girls
eagerly watching a handsome, dashing young man make with
the sword. Ah yes, dear readers, the kids were actually learn- .
Ing fencing.
It is quite obvious fellows, that from now on, you won't
feel safe when you take a girl out unless you ask her what
P.E. class she attends and arm yourself suitably.
Others Were Confuted Too
All of this aroused my interest in the subject so I decided
to do a little snooping. It was really quite by accident that I
happened into the gym one morning to hear the strains of VflSritlV    N Alt/A AC ~	
beautiful music issuing from behind that swinging door. JWlU/j  nUIVtJIlS M   I    kl        L I\

periods. His timetable was carefully looked over and then he
was reminded that he had that very period open and that all
he had to de was to take his shoes off and enter.
Still a little confused, he opened the door, and stood
there amazed. His jaw dropped a foot as the door closed behind him and he found himself standing there while about
one hundred boys and girls stopped their co-ed dancing
course to look at our poor Uttle friend.
Soon, however, he had found a rather pretty little partner and was having a truly gay time learning how to dance
the way that other normal people dance. After it was all over,
he was quite happy about the whole thing.
Everyone It Happy
Yea verily fellows, it takes intestinal fortitude but those
in the class say that it is really the nicest way to meet the
nicest girls and at the same time, learn something useful.
All of these things are due to the work of Mrs. Sleightholme and her associate, Miss Clay. The girls are really
grateful to them for all the new activities that they have
given UBC, and a great number of the boys kinda go for
the idea too.
It begins to look as though Varsity's girls of the future
might very easily be a lot more sport-minded than they have
been in the past.
SENIOR HOOPSTERS PREP
:0R COLLEGIATE GAMES
e   The old maple courts in UBC's gym ore starting to take a beating
already this year as Ihu Senior Hoopmcn limber up the old shooting
arms in preparation for another big year in the world of basketball.
Coach Bob Osborne reports that in the few practices already held,
ihe boys have just been concentrating ou getting into shape but it won't
be long before they start learning the Osborne system of play-making.
There will be two Senior teams entered in competition this year.
3ne will be strictly Inter-Collegiate and the other one will play in ths
City League. The first, it is hoped, wil be playing in the Pacific Northwest
Conference.
Many of last year's stars have returned to the fold this year to don
he Blue and Gold again. Such outstanding stars as Sandy Robertson,
Ron Weber, Ole Bakken, Reg Clarkson, Art Johnson and Pat McGeer
ire back from last year's squad of Thunderbirds.
Many of the boys that have come back from the services are In
ction again also, Ritchie Nicol who has just got out of the Army is
probably best known for his play with the Victoria- Dominoes. Red Ryan
las also been in the Army and will be out there trying.
Many former 'Birds have donned their shoes again including Harry
franklin, Ralph "Hunk" Henderson, Gordy Sykes and Harry Kermode
who played for Lauries in the finals last year.
The UBC Chiefs of last year who played In Senior A company
throughout the season are in there with a goodly representation. Bob
Haas, Fred Bossons, Gerry Stevenson, and Herb Capozzi are amongst
those who are turning out.
Len Letham who played on the Higbie outfit last year when they
downed the Chiefs in the Inter A finals is another future star. Ches
Pederson played for the Senior B's last year and then there are two
more Victoria boys, Mac MacKenzie and Frank Mylrea who was in
the Air Force.
From this terrific assortment of players two quintets have to be
chosen. Casaba enthusiasts forsee a great year in the wordl of hoopla.

• VARSITY soccer squad held
the undefeated Norvans to a
2-1 draw in the V & V headllner
Saturday at Larwill Park, while
the UBC speedsters dropped a
close game to the South Vancouver
boys, 3-2 on the campus.
Norvans opened the scoring on
a penalty shot by Mort McCon-
aghy and' scored again when
Bernie Keeley broke away and
beat goaltender Bob Wilson. Varsity got one back in a pileup in
front of the Shipyard goal as Pat
Campbell squeezed the pill past
Charlie Longuey, to end the scoring in the first half.
In the second half, play was
even with Bud Ray in the Varsity
goal and the Norvan goalie making many good saves. Especially
brilliant on defense were the Blue
and Gold backs Jack Cowan,
Geoff Biddle, Armand Temoln, Don
Petrie and Jack Rush. The forwards, too, were still hustling and
five minutes from full time Pat
Campbell, right winger, shot a
scorcher which had the Norvan
goalie beaten all the way, to tie
the score.

•   SKEETER WEBB picks up the
ball and flings It over to Eddie
Mayo at second to force Hughes
and   THE   WORLD   SERIES   IS
OVER!
Hal Newhouser put down the
Chicago Cubs Wednesday 9-3 In
the seventh and last game of the
1945 World Series.
One big Inning, the first, spelled
defeat for the Cubs as they never
recovered from the five runs that
the Tigers pushed across the plate.
Hank Borrowy, the starting Cub
pitcher, was yanked after the first
three Tigers had hit singles.
After that inning, it was Just a
matter of how long Newhouser
could last agvlnst the fig Cub
sluggers. The Zb-gatne wltinee
showed what staying power hi'
had when he scattered 10 hits to
allow just three runs. Phil Cav-
arreta was the only Cub who provided any trouble to Newhouser.
EXPERIENCE WINS
Experience proved the master
when 39-year old "Doc" Cramer
got three hits In five tries to lead
tha, Tiger attack.
After Borowy and the Cubs had
slaughtered the Tigers in the first
game, 9-0, the odds switched to
the Cubs and they knew that the
opening game in Wrigley Field in
Chicago was the one they nad to
win.
Dizzy Trout pitched that game
and held the Cubs to one run as
his mates garnered four. With ths
series even, tSteve O'Neill, Detroit manager, decided to try
Newhouser again. Hal came
through with an 8-4 victory to put
the Tigers in the driver's seat
which they never gave up to the
end.
SPORTS STAFF
MEETS TODAY
NOW THAT sports are at a
premium here on UBC's campus,
there is a demand for promising
sports writers on the sports staff
of the Ubyssey. And now that
girls athletics have arisen Into
prominence, this goes for girls
too.
All students who have indicated
their desire to write for the Ubyssey sports page, and for that matter, all those who haven't, but
would like to, are asked to meet
at the sports 'lesk in xne Publications office today at noon.
LOTS OF STARS
A slip of the foot lost the Tigers
the sixth game as Chuck Hostetler,
a pinch-hitter, fell when rounding
third on his way to home on Eddie Mayo's single. The Cubs finally won the game In the twelfth
Inning when Stan Hack's single
bounced over Hank Greenberg's
head and Billy Schuster came in
to score.
Stars  of  the  series  were  Hal ^
Newhouser and "Doc" Cramer of
the Tigers, and Stan Hack, Phil
Cavaretta, and Claude Passeau of
the Cubs.
Newhouser was the big boy of
the whole series as he provided
the pitching when Detroit needed
it most. Cramer was the hitting
star for the Bengals as he banged
out ten hits in 26 tries for an
average of .385.
Hack and Cavarretta were the big
hitters for the Cubs as each batted
in the upper 300's. Passeau pitched the best game of the series as
he shut the Tigers out with one
hit in the third game, rilll Nicholson was the leader in the runs
batted In department as he drove
In eight Cub runs.
And so the big book of baseball
closes for another year.
